Just seen Carole and Mike nipping in to see their new Grandson :-D

They must be excited to see their new Grandson, I remember how happy my Parents and in laws were when my eldest was born and the first grandchild on both sides. :-D


CupCakes Report 23 Jul 2013 15:24 the 21-gun salute to mark the royal birth.
Carole and Michael Middleton are the very first guests to visit Kate and William in hospital, they arrived by taxi - they obviously are not leaving in a taxi.

Touching that New Zealand was one of the first Commonwealth countries to mark the birth of the Royal baby today with a 21-gun salute.


Ta for the correction: 41-gun salute in Green Park and 62-gun salute at the Tower of London, both at 2pm.

Cooper when our first grandchild was born we couldn't wait to see with all the others, but the first has that extra special feel about it. :-D

It was a 62 gun salute by the Royal Artillery Company that was fired today to mark the birth of the new Prince.

Not sure where the 21 comes from?

I think that New Zealand was probably one of the first because they are eleven hours ahead of us. I see that the Middletons both arrived and left by taxi - very down to earth.

How much longer do we have to wait we are told 5 mins. The whole world is waiting. Helicopters buzzing over my head - round and round they are going - the noise can do ones head in.......

Tension mounting - Royal protection officer has just come out and gone in again...

Helicopters the noise is deafening there must be more than one going round

Brought tears to my eyes - how wonderful William talking to the press - so relaxed.
Worth the wait to see him <3 <3

Now William is driving himself to Kensington Palace - what a historic day.
